The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin is hosting the third annual Food Sovereignty Summit next week.

The summit takes place October 26-29 at the tribe's Radisson Hotel in Green Bay. The unique event focuses on ways to help Indian Country achieve food sovereignty and build food systems and businesses.

"Conference planners expect participants from throughout the United States," the tribe said in a press release.

Participants can follow three main tracks: applied agriculture, community outreach and bringing products to market. Sessions include trips to the Oneida Nation's food and bison operations, climate change, farming techniques and access to capital.

The First Nations Development Institute co-hosts the summit.
